February is the month of multimodality!

Join us on Wed., February 26th, from 1.00p-1.50p, for a CWS brownbag event on multimodal pedagogy. CWS graduate students Evin Groundwater and Carrie James, as well as CWS alum Hannah Harris, will be discussing their approaches to enacting multimodal pedagogies across teaching contexts. We'll be in Lincoln Hall 1066 for this event.

And on Fri., February 28th, join us for our Inaugural Writing Across Media (WAM) Student Work Showcase. In this gallery walk-style event, we'll be showcasing multimodal student projects from WAM sections over the years. Current instructors and administrators of the course will also be present to chat with guests. We'll plan on seeing you in Everitt 2102 from 12.00p-1.00p. More information about the showcase can be accessed here and an event flyer can be viewed here.

If you have suggestions for programing you'd like to see through CWS, please share them by emailing Logan Middleton or Bri Lafond.
